Ideal Theatre Community?

Over in San Francisco, theatre service organization Theatre Bay Area is hosting its annual convention. You can follow along in Twitter using #tbacon14. They're also streaming the opening session "What Is the Ideal Theatre Community?" -- which I'm watching now. (I'm having problems embedding it on this page, but you can watch it live or the archive online at www.howlround.com) One of the great quotes from the session was a comparison between…See More

Spring Round-Up!

A quick post from Crystal about her play getting produced at the Acting Out INK Fest in L.A. (Congrats!) got me thinking about what everyone else is up to here on TheatreFace! Take a second to check in and tell me what you're working on right now! I'll start... Finishing the outline of the second draft of my play Security, and prepping Authentic for some more submission opportunities. Your turn! What are you up to?  See More

A Prop Untethered: The Magic of Wireless Dimming at USITT 2014

Greetings all! This is a placeholder post for now, but on Wednesday, March 26, I'll start live-blogging the A Prop Untethered: The Magic of Wireless Dimming session from USITT! Come back then for more updates, obviously. Meanwhile, here's the session description from the USITT show catalogue: 

Theatrical props and costumes can often be enhanced with light or motion, but operating these enhancements can be problematic. Rather than settle for effects that are always on, or…

My 2014 USITT Schedule

So once again it is time for USITT! It’s like Christmas for technical theatre nuts. A full week of informative sessions, networking and new gear. It’s one of my busiest few days of the year as I run around like mad trying to do everything all at once. This year my USITT experience kicks off as I live-blog and live-tweet a Props/Lighting Session, A Prop Untethered: The Magic of Wireless Dimming. The first session I ever went to at a USITT show was a similar one a few years back, so I’m…

The 2014 Oscars and Theatre

For the second year in a row I ate to much at my Oscar party -- and lost my Oscar pool. D'oh! But even though I didn't win the pool, I had a great time watching the Oscars (of course) -- especially with all the theatre shout-outs. (I also loved the rotating set pieces and the rose curtain.) Here were some of my favorite theatre moments -- including one that will probably embarrass John Travolta for a very long time... What your favorite moments of the show? 

First, Idina…

HI. I teach a High School Theatre 3/4 class. We are working on audition materials for college auditions. I'm not able to get the students out of class for the scheduled time of the chat. Is there a place we could look at the chat after it has happened?

hi jacob; just a quick note. a) i was going to post this in general but couldn't figure out where general was. is there a public forum out there that an old luddite like me can't find it? and b) my post concerns the fact that i was about to submit my taxes today when i discovered, much to my surprise, that i had TWO 1099's from two different producers that lumped in additional monies to the fees. on one, for example, i got paid a fee of $1000. but the 1099 said $1,203.75. that's because they added my fee and the money they reimbursed me for my petty cash [$203.75] together. which is WRONG.

the second 1099 reflected not only the fee, but added in the per diem as well. which i think is also wrong, but at this point that's only my opnion. i have to get back to my accountant.

bottom line, this is the time of year for the taxes to be addressed. and everyone should take the time to carefully examine their 1099's and W-2's to make sure the information is right. and if it isn't; NOW is the time to ask for explanations or corrections. NOT the day before you submit your taxes.

all the best,

shelley

Hello Jacob.

I must say this is a great site. Not only for solving one of my biggest problems - I am shy by nature and find myself running a great little theater business...but I don't like marketing (and hence I am not terribly good at it.) Connecting with people that would be interested in and benefit from Newmark Scenic is one of my most difficult tasks.

But also the layout and configuration kicks ass. If the software running this is pre-packaged it rocks. Rarely have I seen this level of custom control of a blog type site. Recently I went to login, but had no bookmarks. Typing in the URL led me to a hosting service park/marketing page, and I got really concerned that theatre face went down. Then I realized I had typed theaterface.com!

Keep up the good work, it is appreciated.

Hi Jacob,
Thanks for making the comment wall available. If anyone has questions about theater mic techniques or microphones, especially stage-floor microphones, I'd be happy to attempt a reply.
